50 Years Ago

Can it really be 50 years ago?  50 years since JFK was assassinated?  It hardly seems possible.

In a previous post, I told how I was only in 5th grade when this happened. It's still one of those events which sears into your memory where you were / what you were doing when you heard the news.

The assassination has haunted me as it has so many others.  How could this be?  How could he be taken from us?  Then come the what ifs. What if he had lived?  What if he had been reelected?  What if he were still with us - at age 96 now?

We can only wonder.  Then, we must remember. The worst crime would be to forget him, his legacy, his contributions.  I'm sure he would urge us forward; but we still must never forget.
